Plymouth Energy Community

Plymouth Energy Community (PEC) is a community benefit society, therefore regulated by the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. Goals are: to reduce energy bills; to improve energy efficiency; and to generate a green energy supply in the city. Projects including at the Life Centre and schools have been funded by loans from Plymouth City Council and ‘solar share offers’ in 2014 and 2015. This year’s share offer seeks funding to replace the short-term construction loan that was used to build Ernesettle community solar.
